Is it wrong of me.....

Recommended Posts

To have my ice shake set up in front of the big screen TV? My wife thinks I may have a problem. My 4 year old loves play in "the fort" as she calls it. I plan on sharing a beer with my dad during the Vikings game today from that very spot. Is it me? have I gone to far? Is this a symtom of ice fish fever?

Dont worry, your perfectly "normal". grin.gif

Last night I got a new ice rod and some lures. I was out in the living room rigging up the rod and organizing my tackle box!

Backwater, good point. It does have a nice bench seat. If my "fever" persists this may be the next step.

Did the same thing last year. Only I fell into a type of fishing trance and got thru the carpet with my auger before the screaming stopped me. Hey, it could happen!

Sound ok to me....When I got a new boat, I was working on electronics location. My wife walked in the garage in Feb. and I was sitting in boat with rod in hand. She just looked baffled, laughed, turned and left. Last Sun. I rigged and organized for the upcoming season. I had the living room covered. Wife just said have it all back in the garage by the time Sopranos are on.LOL

Thats not so bad. I have a friend that ripped apart his airboat in the off season and hung some of the parts on his living room walls. He said it was just tempory untill the parts he ordered came in. They are still hanging there,the parts were in last year.

Mr Pike, nothing wrong with that, as long as it doesn't sit there all winter.

Heck, I'd skip the game and go fishing. Take the two beers along and bring a radio and listen to the game. When it gets too frustrating to listen anymore, turn it off.....I think the Vikes will stink out the joint today anyway. .......T

I think today if the trap was up in the living room and I was watching the Vikes. I would went in the trap, zipped it up, and saved myself the anger from watching.

I've done the same. Doesn't everybody?

My wife didn't have a problem with me assembling my voyager in the living room, but wasn't understanding of me leaving it there 'till first-ice. Women. . .

It's OK to drill holes in your living room if your basement's flooded. Gotta test the electronics somehow. cool.gif

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
